A totally unique estate immersed in ca 1000 hectares of uncontaminated countryside.
This large and impressive property has been meticolously restored in part by a passionate architect who has recreated wonderful modern communal spaces whilst conserving the originality of a village atmosphere, a working farm and a natural oasis for nature and animals to thrive.
The property finds itself in a sheltered position protected by the Pratomagno mountain range to the north and east providing a particular micro-climate where the 81 Ha of olive trees produce exquisite Tuscan extra virgin olive oil.
The original 17th century convent and wider complex of Casamora has been partly restored and developed as a centre for the arts, architecture and olive oil production. Featuring a particularly special theater/concert hall that can hold up to 180 people, a chapel, a fabulously designed modern 2-storey library, the architect’s studio, dedicated olive oil tasting and production rooms with an olive press exhibition centre, a wine-tasting cellar and two restaurant areas with professional kitchens.
The partial restoration of the main hamlet of ca. 5600 sqm has provided an atmosphere of attractive, modern and functional design in a fascinating agricultural setting. The current owners have created a “village” with a central square and 6 restored homes around it with a large communal swimming pool, fountains and loggias and an elegant garden with ancient trees.
Externally the inter-communicating courtyards have been naturally integrated within the whole village complex producing great juxtaposition of modern and past, but allowing the space to harmonize and flow out into the formal gardens and natural landscape, where you will also find close by a tennis court and a swimming pool.
Not withstanding the already large amount of beautifully restored buildings the development potential is enormus and the vicinity to Florence an important plus. Indeed the main residential villa is in need of considerable modernization with a further 8600 sqm of buildings to develop including two further small hamlets to restore and ten farmhouses spread over the estate reached by c.a. 12 km of tracks through the olive groves and woodland which climb up to 900 meters above sea level at its highest point.
There is also great potential in developing the sporting rights to this estate as it enjoys 400 Ha that form a hunting reserve.
An area rich with rivers, tracks for hiking, riding and cycling and many Roman Churches along the ancient pilgrimage route of the seven bridges (Sette Ponti)
An area famous for its excellent olive oil, bean and lentil cultivation.
